World Read Aloud Day March 7, 2012 – Join Me!

 

wrad2012badge

On March 7, 2012, LitWorld is hosting World Read Aloud Day. LitWorld is a non-profit international advocate for literacy.  This is from their website:  We work to cultivate literacy leaders worldwide through transformational literacy experiences that build connection, understanding, resilience and strength. LitWorld joins together with teachers, parents, community members, and children to support the development of sustainable literacy practices across the world.

Literacy is the foundation for emotional and physical well-being, intellectual growth, and economic security. The right to read and write is a fundamental human right and belongs to all people.

The concept of World Read Aloud Day is simple. Where ever you are in the world,  read aloud to someone. You can gather a group together, read aloud via Skype, or simply read aloud to your children. It is up to you how you want to celebrate. I plan on creating a video of me reading aloud one of my favorite Perfect Picture Books. Will you join me?  LitWorld has some great ideas for sharing the message of world literacy on their website. They have badges, activities and even an ebook to download!  Please visit and then join with me to help promote reading for everyone!

    Loni — A great idea to post a video reading your favorite book. I have it on my list of things to do. I may be joining you by posting one of my own! Thanks for the idea.
